Arsenal are reportedly keen on securing the transfer of the very highly rated and talented young Germany international star, so it could be very good news for the Gunners this week, as the former Germany striker Oliver Bierhoff who is the and general manager of the German national team let slip that Goretzka is going to move to the Emglish Premier League.
As reported by Metro, Bierhoff was talking about the talent drain involving the best young German players such as the Man City forward Leroy Sane, because of all the money in the English game from the various TV deals we get.
He said, ‘We feel that England, because of the amount of money you have with TV rights, young talented players like Leroy Sané and [Schalke’s] Leon Goretzka are moving to England and this is not good for our league but also for the quality of our game.
‘We have to pay attention and invest again and again in the education of our coaches.’
You can understand why Bierhoff is worried about this and it is happening all over Europe, but from an Arsenal point of view it could be every good news of it means that Goretzka is going to become a Gunner. Don’t bank on it, though, because other Premier League clubs including our north London rivals Tottenham as well as Jurgen Klopp’s Liverpool are said to be in the mix as well.
